Don't you ever wonder why, nothing ever seems to change
If it does it's for the worse, seems it's just a modern curse
Sometimes when I take a peek outside of my little cage
Everyone looks so asleep, will they die before they wake?

And hey, don't you know? We're just products of our time
And hey, what d'ya say? Show me yours, I'll show you mine

Better dumb and happy than smart and without any friends
Better cute and better loud, better join up with the crowd
Keep up or be left behind, there's a dust storm in my mind
Seems I can't see straight these days, doesn't matter anyway

And hey, don't you know? We're just products of our time
And hey, what d'ya say? Show me yours, I'll show you mine

Hey, what d'ya say? Hey, what d'ya say? Please don't ever

Oh God, here's that question now, the one that makes me go insane
I'd gladly tear my heart out if you never, never, never, never change

Do you want to change?
Do you want to change right now?
Do you want to change?

I like my stupid life just the way it is
And I wouldn't even change it for a thousand flying pigs
And I like you just the way you are

I like your face just the way it is
And I wouldn't even trade it for a herd of screaming kids
And I like you just the way you are

I like you though you may not like me back
I would dazzle you with brilliance if I only had the knack
'Cause I like you just the way you are

I like this life just the way it is
And the castles all around me have been melting now for years
And it kills my brain to think of all the time I wasted here
All the efforts, sweat and broken hearts, the screaming and the tears

And I'm dreaming again
And I'm dreaming again
And I'm dreaming again

Flowing in a pool of mud
Trying to get back where I was
And I don't really care

Got a little talking to
By the mirror in my room
And I don't really care

Whispering voices from the dead
Come from underneath my bed
And I don't really care

I like my stupid life just the way it is
And the chaos that surrounds me like a flock of screaming pigs
And it hurts my brain to think of all the stupid things I've said
And if I could change the future, I would change the past instead

And I'm dreaming again
And I'm dreaming again
And I'm dreaming again

Baby, sometimes I worry about you
Sometimes you're so far away, tell me what to do?
I say, baby, sometimes I worry about you
Sometimes I just can't believe everything you do

I say, baby, sometimes I worry about you
Every day I feel the same, don't you feel it too?
I say, baby, sometimes I worry about me
Seems I'm falling down a lot, in between the scenes

I say, baby, sometimes I worry about me
Getting harder all the time, harder now to see
I say, baby, sometimes I worry about me
Light another cigarette, have another dream

It's the same thing every day
Nothing ever seems to change
And I

Do you really want to, really want to?
Hey, what d'ya say? Hey, what d'ya say?
Please don't ever

Testaments and growing pains, tranquilizers for the soul
Nothing ventured, nothing gained, evolution's cruelest joke
Why is everyone upset? I once knew but I forget, something happened
Something strange, something it appears has changed

And hey, don't you know? We're just products of our time
And hey, what d'ya say? If I show you yours, then show me mine

Hey, what d'ya say? Hey, what d'ya say? Please don't, please

Oh God, here's that question now, the one that makes me go insane
I'd gladly tear my heart out if you never change, never change
Never change, never change, never, never, never, never change
